The Doctoral Development Studies Programme is one of the programmes offered by the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). It is promoted by the Hegoa Institute and the departments of Applied Economics I, Applied Economics IV, Sociology, Sociology II and Business Law and by the Gezki Institute. It holds a “Mention for Excellence” awarded by the Ministry of Education.
It is intended to educate and train researchers in the topics covered by the relevant research lines. This is an interdisciplinary doctoral studies programme that promotes the preparation of doctoral theses which conduct critical, rigorous, in-depth analyses of globalisation, development processes and international cooperation.
The programme therefore offers doctorands the methodological support and academic guidance that they need to successfully complete their doctoral theses.
Coordinator: Imanol Zubero
